MILWAUKEE (AP) - Milwaukee Brewers broadcasterBob Uecker left the hospital Wednesday, eight days after his second heart surgery this year.

The 75-year-old Uecker said in a statement released by the team that he’s thankful to the doctors and staff at the hospital for his care and is encouraged to be going home.

The latest surgery repaired a tear from the valve replacement performed in April. Doctors say they believe a staph infection caused the complication.

Uecker returned to the booth in July after his first surgery. He’s expected to be ready for spring training in February and begin his 41st year broadcasting Brewers games.
